Bob Lowerre's Reader Commentary in the Monday, Aug. 6 Northern Virginia Daily illustrates the basic difference between liberals and conservatives.
Liberals like Mr. Lowerre believe in the Nannie State. They want to take money from people who have worked for it and give it to people who have not. They are of the opinion that society should "give the unfortunate fellow a fish."
Conservatives believe in self reliance and creating jobs so that everyone has an opportunity to earn money. They are of the opinion that society should "teach the unfortunate fellow how to fish."
Mr. Lowerre is unhappy with U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), but concedes that most of his constituents agree with the congressman. To prove the congressman's constituents are uninformed, Mr. Lowerre trots out the same tired, lame smoke and mirrors that Obama supporters have used for over a year to try and excuse the president's miserable record of failures.
Then, Mr. Lowerre announces that Rep. Goodlatte has a worthy opponent. Worthy, I'm sure, because he is a liberal; certainly not because of his weak resume that Mr. Lowerre presented. I'm sure the fellow is a decent man, but why would we want to vote for someone with no experience who will need on-the-job training from the likes of Nancy Pelosi?
Rep. Goodlatte has always voted conservative values, has seniority on important committees, and gives personal attention to constituent problems. Vote for Bob.
